The Popularity of Cyanogen has given these developers a taste of power

January 22nd, 2012


If you didn’t know it, Cyanogen is a group of exceptional developers that are focused on wringing every ounce of performance and customisability out of the Android platform. With the creation of custom ROMs for numerous Android devices, Cyanogen has generated a kind of cult status among those who would like to tell the Mobile Phone Service Providers with their locked devices and sub-par performance…to FUCK-OFF!

Cyanogen recently announced over 1 million installs of their wildly popular CM7.

CM7 is basically a retooled Android GingerBread (Android 2.3.X) that is capable of making your old, outdated Android phone scream with performance…so to speak.

Here is a quote from a recent PC World article pointing out some of the interesting aspects to this popularity.

One of the biggest reasons, if not perhaps the biggest reason, that owners of Android and iPhone phones “root” or “jailbreak” their device to install custom firmware and operating systems is so they can install unofficial tethering and hotspot services. Perhaps the most popular unofficial system, CyanogenMod, is at the point where it not only pushes Google to offer some of its features in their official Android builds, but is considering its own Android app store, to provide apps like ClockworkMod Tether.

CyanogenMod 9 Alpha builds for Galaxy S, Nexus S

November 28th, 2011

Who wants to wait for Google to get the ball rolling? CyanogenMod 9 (I.C.S.) is in an early Alpha stage with a couple of semi-stable ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S and the Samsung Nexus S.

The Nexus S isn’t the only one running CyanogenMod 9, either — a beta version for the international Galaxy S is available to download on the xda-developers forum. It’s worth noting that even though both versions appear to be functional and not missing any major features, there’s plenty of posts noting a variety of issues users are having. Problems include some wiped internal SD cards on the Galaxy S and bugs with the contact list and phone app on the Nexus S. So while these releases may be nearly feature complete, they’re still not for the faint of heart.
